I was wondering if anyone could tell me what is the safest amount to advance my ka24e on pump gas before damaging the engine? I went to 15 degrees tdc (it runs at 10 stock). I turned it back until I know what is safe for that engine. And what do i need to do so the computer doesn't cancel out the advance in timing? Thanks.

why not leave at at 10 that is the factory optimal setting fow power and economy
well what im looking for is power. I did notice at 15 degrees it drank more gas, but it had a noticable difference in power, very noticable in 5th. It climbed decent sized hills for once in 5th. I recently moved into the western part of va and its kinda hilly. i was also considering turboing the engine. I am going to lower it sometime next week.

The reason I turned it back is because it does have some miles on it, and i wanted to get some opinions before i damage the engine.I just did the clutch and timing chain, so now I feel as if i should tinker with it a bit.

I have a ka24de out of a 240 sitting in my garage that I hope to put in there at some point. I already have the truck oil pan and such.
